I’ve been a long-time drinker of protein shakes, and lately, I’ve been enjoying Clean Lean Protein, a protein powder made by Nuzest. I’ve tried all their flavors, like vanilla…
One of the things that’s great about Clean Lean Protein is that is comes in a couple more flavors, too. Chocolate and vanilla are standard protein powder flavors, but other flavors are more rare. Nuzest, however, has strawberry and coffee.
I’ve tried them all. I’m not a coffee drinker, so the coffee flavor didn’t appeal to me, but the other three are delicious. They also have something that even rarer still: an unflavored protein powder. They call it “Just Natural,” and it only has one ingredient: pea powder isolate.
Yup, Clean Lean Protein is made from European golden peas, which they say is the “most potent vegetable protein around.” As a result, their products are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and GMO free.
And they’re not kidding about the ‘clean’ and ‘lean’ in their name. A single serving packs in 21 or 22 grams of protein, depending on the flavor, and all flavors have 90 calories or less, and 1 gram or less of carbs and fat.
Nuzest sent me a tub of Just Natural, and I first tried it by itself, and it’s definitely an acquired taste. Just because it has no added flavorings doesn’t mean it doesn’t have flavor, and it tastes chalky and a little bitter.
But I didn’t notice that when I mixed it up in a smoothie with other flavorful things. This week, I’ve been making a morning protein shake with frozen raspberries, fresh peaches (the final peaches of the year!), a handful of leafy greens, and milk.
My raspberry peach smoothie!
A great way to start the day.
I’m excited to see what else I can do with Just Natural protein powder, like add it to savory dishes (soup!) (quinoa!) (sauces!) that could use a little kick of protein. More news to come as I play around with it!
